Why Beach Houses in Clifton are Some of the Most Expensive in South Africa

Considering a permanent lifestyle change or are you looking for a beach house holiday home in one of the most sought-after blue chip suburbs of South Africa? Despite the lacklustre economic backdrop, wealthy buyers are still seeing Clifton as a good store of wealth. Considered as the most exclusive and affluent residential suburb in South Africa, as well as the unofficial playground of the worlds’ most rich and famous – Clifton is not only home to some of the most expensive real estate on the continent, but also the most sought-after.

The Best Blue Flag Beaches in the World

Flaunting a collection of four beautiful secluded beaches, Clifton’s 4th beach was awarded Blue Flag status in recognition of its environmental, safety and tourist standards. Boasting clean beaches, excellent facilities and good-looking lifeguards, Clifton has not only earned the title as Cape Town’s Saint-Tropez, but it was also rated 2nd best in the world on National Geographic's “Top 10 Beach Cities” list in 2015. Beautiful people and a phenomenal and infectious vibe complemented by super yachts, dolphins and outstanding beach weather for at least 7 months of the year make Clifton beach houses an exclusive address of immense value that every affluent property owner wants to include in their real estate portfolio.

The Most Glamorous “Iron Man Meets James Bond” Houses in the World

The playground of our very own “one-percenters”, Clifton is considered by many as the most prestigious address in the southern Hemisphere, offering everything from beach bungalows and villas, to modern apartments and luxury beach houses. A millionaire’s mile without a doubt, and as one of the most stable residential property markets in the South Africa– beach houses in Clifton top the list when it comes to the “wow” factor.

Accentuating exquisite architectural exteriors and interiors, these exclusive homes highlight spacious two- to three-storey beach houses that boast up to 5 bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms with jetted bathtubs, fully-equipped kitchens with all the latest furnishings, laundry rooms, open-plan dining areas that flaunt floor-to-ceiling glass doors, and last but not least, grand open-plan lounges that extend outside onto cold or heated infinity pools that have first-class views of the ocean. As if these features weren’t enough, additional “wow” features include elevators, wine cellars, steam rooms, customised cinemas and gyms. As you can imagine, security is far from an afterthought in this top-notch neighbourhood. Offering unparalleled 24-hour security with CCTV, video monitoring and access control at all security entrances – this is one neighbourhood where you’ll hardly find crime.

With enormous “Iron Man meets James Bond” houses nestled on cliffs with sweeping multi-million Dollar views of the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa and the Atlantic Ocean, a beach house in Clifton can easily cost between R10 and R80 million. In fact, a beach house in Clifton can now (April 2016) attract a premium of 40% more than a luxury apartment in Sandton.

Topping the list as the most expensive and sought-after property genre of choice for many well-heeled local and international buyers, a beach house in Clifton is an attractive place in which to holiday, live, play and invest. In a country where many feel the need to be closer to the city, as well as to enjoy the perks of luxury, safety, security and the ocean lifestyle – these properties offer residents a better quality of life, unlike any other.
